The 76084 Locomotive Company Limited was formed in September 1997 after purchase of the locomotive by a small group of enthusiasts who saw 76084’s potential. The main objective of the Company was to restore the locomotive and tender by the issue of shares. This was at the time a novel way of raising funds to restore a steam locomotive. When 76084 returned to traffic on the North Norfolk Railway in July 2013 over £750,000 had been spent on her restoration. This is thanks to the contribution of approximately 200 shareholders scattered around the UK and overseas. The North Norfolk Railway became worthy partners to the restoration when they injected cash into the final stages ensuring a speedy completion, and an agreement was reached for the engine to start Its new life at the Railway.
Although 76084 is a relatively small engine, being a Class 4, It Is a strong and yet economical locomotive.
The engine Is available for main line hire and also to other preserved railways – subject to availability. For details and enquiries please contact our Registered Office.
